Make the Move to Paper – the Sustainable Solution.

July 13, 2018

Plastic bag bans or taxes have been introduced in numerous countries worldwide over recent years.  

Full country bans have occurred in Italy and Morocco. In Australia, Canada, the United States, Brazil and China there are localised or partial bans. In Malaysia, England and Belgium taxes are being levied rather than fines for use of bags and in Australia additional States of Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia will look to ban the bag. Part of this ban can include using reusable 35um plastic bags. Centaur Packaging is not in favour of this move as the 35um reusable plastic bags will last a lot longer in our environment compared to the single use 18um singlet bag that everyone was using.We also offer other alternatives such as compostable, biodegradable bags and no woven, But by far the better solution in our minds is Cotton, Jute and paper bag.

Centaur Packaging is dedicated to supplying the best environmentally friendly options and is currently working on reusable cotton, string and bring your own bag alternatives.

We have the perfect paper solution. Our paper bags are made from quality, sustainable raw materials, to offer better strength than plastic bag equivalents.

Made from a renewable resource, our bags provide a sustainable alternative to single-use plastic bags for the food service industry and are:

  • Recyclable

  • Renewable

  • Compostable

Our bags can be easily and economically printed, stamped or stickered to allow you to easily add brand messaging to your bags.

We’re encouraging retailers and those in the foodservice industry to make the move to paper and eliminate plastic waste were possible.


We have a quality range of packaging products for retail use.
